Endangered Species Recovery presents case studies of prominent species recovery programs in an attempt to explore and analyze their successes, failures, and problems, and to begin to find ways of improving the process. It is the first effort to engage social scientists as well as biologists in a wide-ranging analysis and discussion of endangered species conservation, and provides valuable insight into the policy and implementation framework of species recovery programs. The book features a unique integration of case studies with theory, and provides sound, practical ideas for improving endangered species policy implementation.

About Author

Tim Clark is a biologist by training who does most of his work now on questions of environmental policy. He divides his time between Yale, where he is an adjunct professor, and Jackson, WY, where he is the president and founder of the Northern Rockies Conservation Cooperative, a successful nonprofit group with a good reputation, whose mission is creative, cooperative, practical problem solving in the conservation of nature. Alice L. Clarke is a post-doctoral fellow at the Norwegian Institute for Nature Research, University of Trondheim. Craig Groves is currently Conservation Approach Director at The Nature Conservancy where he specializes in land/ocean interface and interaction. Previously, he worked as Director of the Wildlife Conservation Society's Greater Yellowstone Program where he oversaw several wildlife research and conservation projects and was involved in conservation planning at the landscape level.He is a North American representative to the IUCN Commission on Ecosystem Management where he serves on an international task force to revise the IUCN System of Management Categories for Protected Areas. Groves was one of the principal players in launching and implementing ecoregional conservation planning efforts. He received a Guggenheim Fellowship to write a book on conservation planning, Drafting a Conservation Blueprint: A Practitioner's Guide to Planning for Biodiversity. Groves has published over 40 papers and book chapters on the ecology of various nongame species, the management of at-risk species, and planning for biodiversity conservation. Julia M. Wondolleck is Associate Professor of Natural Resources and Environmental Policy at the University of Michigan. She is an expert in the theories and application of dispute resolution and collaborative planning processes, and is the author or coauthor of three books: Public Lands Conflict and Resolution: Managing National Forest Disputes (Plenum 1988), Environmental Disputes: Community Involvement in Conflict Resolution (Island Press 1990), and Making Collaboration Work: Lessons from Innovation in Natural Resource Management (Island Press 2000). Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, she spent her youth sailing on the Bay and hiking in the Sierra. As a result, her research interests span both terrestrial and marine realms, most recently examining collaborative science in the NOAA National Estuarine Research Reserve System, contributions of Sanctuary Advisory Councils in the NOAA National Marine Sanctuary Program, and community engagement strategies for the NOAA Marine Protected Areas Center. Dr. Wondolleck has an undergraduate degree in economics and environmental studies from the University of California-Davis and a master's degree and PhD in environmental policy and planning from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Stephen R. Kellert was the Tweedy/Ordway Professor of Social Ecology at the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies and author of numerous books including, The Biophilia Hypothesis (coedited with E. O. Wilson, 1993), The Value of Life: Biological Diversity and Human Society (1996), Kinship to Mastery: Biophilia in Human Evolution and Development (1997), The Good in Nature and Humanity: Connecting Science, Religion, and Spirituality with the Natural World (coedited with T. Farnham, 2002), and Children and Nature: Psychological, Sociocultural, and Evolutionary Investigations (coedited with P. H. Kahn, 2002). James Crowfoot was dean of the University of Michigan's School of Natural Resources and a core faculty member of the university's interdisciplinary program in Conflict Management Alternatives.
